"We wanted to give the families closure", she said.

"One day, I got a telephone call from my brother from Iraq, informing he was stuck and it seemed hard to come out of the unpredictable circumstances due to terrorist activities", she said. The 39 Indian workers were captured as the militants secured a swathe of territory in northern Iraq.

The government is "fully committed" to ensure the safety of Indians overseas. The militants also abducted 46 Indian nurses, but all of them were released after a few weeks. One youth, identified as Harjit Masih, managed to return to India.

She told in the Rajya Sabha that their bodies were spotted using deep penetration radar.

The department had earlier collected DNA samples from the kin of the hostages, which was then matched with the remains of bodies found in one of the mass graves. Of the 39 deceased, 27 are from Punjab, six are from Bihar, four from Himachal Pradesh and two from West Bengal.

Fighting off their tears, family members of the eight people from Amritsar and Tarn Taran districts confirmed dead in Iraq today, recounted their struggle over the past almost four years for authoritative information about them.

In July previous year, Sushma refused to declare that the Indians were dead, saying, "It is a sin to declare a person dead without concrete evidence". She said, "It is a sin to declare a person dead without concrete evidence". The government kept us in the dark all these years.

"We got to know that these people were moved from Mosul to Badush by their captors", Swaraj said. I am waiting to speak with her. The remaining 39 were then taken to Badoosh and killed by the terror group, according to India's foreign ministry.

Sushma said that Indian officials requested to remove the bodies from their Iraqi counterparts.

She also criticised the Congress for "playing politics" with these deaths. "But today Sushma Swaraj ji said that they'd all been killed, we are completely shattered now", Dimplejeet Kaur, sister of Dharminder from Gurdaspur, one of the victims, told Sputnik. He had claimed the 39 had been shot dead in 2014 itself. Swaraj had said at that time that she had eight sources who confirmed that the 39 Indians were still alive. "His was a cock-and-bull story", Swaraj said. Massi had escaped along with Bangladeshis with the help of a caterer with a fake name "Ali", she said. "The details were revealed to me by Masih's employer and the caterer who helped him". Masih was arrested in March this year on charges of forgery connected to an illegal immigration racket.

However, Swaraj disputed this and has refused to confirm the deaths based on his account.
